Explore Somerset

A County of Surprises!

Somerset is still essentially a rural county and its landscape is one of remarkable contrast. There are lowland marshes, soaring cliffs, sandy beaches, wild moors, wooded hillsides and chalk grasslands. It is possible to take almost every kind of transport to explore Somerset because it has a huge network of public footpaths, cycle routes, bridleways, canals, rivers, cobbled streets, steam trains and hot air balloons.

We have a National Park and International Dark Sky Reserve, Exmoor; a World Heritage Site, Bath; a huge coastal realignment scheme, Steart Marshes; one of the oldest engineered roads in the world and the highest inland and coastal cliffs in the country. We also do small and secret with tiny hamlets, hidden harbours, cosy pubs, low ceilings, medieval bridges, village shops and woodland glades.
Whatever it is you’re seeking in a new place to explore, we are pretty sure you’ll find it in Somerset.
